    How to Keep Pitta Balanced?

      • Foods more cooling in nature to balance the natural heat within their constitution

      • Lifestyle: following a routine and allowing for down time to refrain from burnout

      • Herbs and treatment: herbs that balance the excessive heat in the body. Amalaki and Guduchi are two herbs that are great for Pitta Dosha!

    It is important that you speak with a practitioner to understand if these qualities are due to an imbalance or natural tendencies. Who is the ‘Pitta’ in your life?
